    We previously made reference to the anti-Israel conference organized for February 28- March 1, 2014 by Lisa Duggan, a professor in NYU’s American Studies Department and incoming President of the American Studies Association. (Full conference poster at bottom of post.) When Elder of Ziyon blog and others caught wind of Duggan trying to keep the Conference from coming to the attention of those who oppose ASA’s academic boycott of Israel, the Facebook post for the event was taken down. The Conference is an NYU function, but it’s hardly academic. The panels are stacked with anti-Israel academic boycott movement supporters arguing...

    It is nothing short of chilling. A video, taken on the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, shows masses of French protesters marching down a Paris thoroughfare chanting openly anti-Semitic slogans and calling on Jews to get out of France. Chants include "Jews, France is not yours!" "Jews out of France" and "The story of the gas chambers is bull***!" At one point, in a show of raw, seething hatred, the crowd simply spits out the word "Jew, Jew, Jew!" Many of the marchers can be seen giving the "quenelle" inverted Nazi salute popularized by anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne. The gesture...

    As we approach the centennial of World War I, we will read much of the blunders that produced that tragedy of Western civilization. Among them will be the “blank check” Kaiser Wilhelm II gave to Vienna after the assassination by a Serb terrorist of the Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand. If you decide to punish the Serbs, said the Kaiser, we are with you. After dithering for weeks, Austria shelled Belgrade. Within a week, Germany and Austria were at war with Russia, France and Great Britain. Today the Senate is about to vote Israel a virtual blank check—for war on Iran....

Using the Twitter social Website, Anelka argued in his tweets that the gesture - in which he thrust his straightened right arm downwards while tapping his bicep with the other hand - was merely "anti-establishment". adding, "I don't know what religion has to do with it. Of course I'm not an anti-Semite or racist and (I) stand by my gesture." Anelka did assert that the gesture was a dedication to French comedian Dieudonne M'Bala M'Bala who has made...

Speaking to Army Radio in the wake of the death of former South African president Nelson Mandela, Ambassador Sisa Ngombane said that South Africans “hate oppression”, hinting at the fact that Israel was oppressing Palestinian Authority Arabs similar to how blacks were oppressed in South Africa. “There is a claim that South Africans hate Israel, but it’s totally untrue,” said Ngombane, adding, “South Africans hate oppression. Mandela was the representative of the oppressed and therefore it has been said that he identified...

    Samantha Power has been a notorious critic of Israel for years and that, naturally, makes her well-qualified under President Obama's criteria to serve in such a crucial post. She will be welcomed with open arms at the United Nations. We at American Thinker have been warning about her influence with Barack Obama since 2008 (see Samantha Power and Obama's Foreign Policy Team). But her bit of nastiness seems to be tinged with a bit of anti-Semitism as well.

    Anti-Semitic attacks in Russia remained rare in 2011 and 2012 amid rising anti-Muslim vitriol, according to a new report by a Russian-Jewish group. “During the reviewed period, the number of attacks of anti-Semitic character in Russia has remained relatively low,” according to the report published last week by the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress. The report lists five physical assaults and 38 instances of anti-Semitic vandalism. The report’s authors wrote that the low level of anti-Semitic attacks correlates with an increase in anti-Muslim vitriol connected to religious tensions in the country’s South.

As country after country caves and cowers to Islamic supremacist demands, violence and hatred, the Jews, the most despised of people under Islam, are fleeing in droves -- and those who stay must hide. Europe will reap what she has sown. This rampant violence and hate is never covered by the mainstream media. Instead we are subjected to the non-stop fiction of of "islamophobia" and the mythical victimhood narrative employed by Islamic supremacists and their media quislings.

The response to these issues -- coming from a group of scholars who were largely leftists or liberals themselves -- was quite remarkable.

    There is no lack of antisemites today. But it is very hard to talk about the identity of the vast majority of them. Indeed, Yale University has just revamped its institute on antisemitism, apparently because it spent too much time talking about the overwhelming problem with antisemitism today–Islamic and especially Islamist antisemitism. In other words, the real antisemites are whitewashed, while those fighting antisemitism are called antisemites. The supporters of Israel are called enemies of Israel by those who themselves are generally enemies of Israel. The truth is the exact opposite of what Milbank wrote. Beck is the leading purveyor...

    The Republican campaigns of 2006 and 2008 consisted of long litanies of dropping the ball when it comes to the Democrats' vulnerabilities. I refer specifically to John McCain's and Rick Santorum's inexcusable failure to call their opponents out for indefensible racist, anti-Semitic, and/or anti-Catholic connections. Casey's acceptance of's support should have disqualified him, especially in a state with a large Catholic population. Promoted Anti-Semitic and Anti-Catholic Hate Speech In 2006, I joined Jan Poller and Robert Goldberg in exposing's exercise of editorial control in favor of anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, and other forms of hate speech at the organization's...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu lectured President Barack Obama in his own office, warning him not to chase "illusions" of Middle East peace and opening a deep rift in US-Israel ties. In a dramatic Oval Office appearance on Friday, after 90 minutes of talks, Prime Minister Netanyahu emphatically vowed Israel would never return to its 1967 borders and laid down a set of non-negotiable conditions for peace talks. The exchange, which left hopes for Obama's peace drive more remote than ever, came a day after the US president called on Israel to accept a return to territorial lines...

    I’ve been thinking about race, and prejudice, a lot over the past week. The world has been quick to condemn John Galliano for his anti-Semitic rant. I condemned him a long time ago, firstly for portraying women on his catwalk as adolescent boys and, secondly, for his wanton, unthinking use of fur.
  • Citizens fight back against depraved anti-Semitic, homosexual musical at high school.

    A vile, homosexual-themed anti-Semitic musical play that was performed at Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) in December 2009 is the subject of community outrage. The high school has long been a center of aggressive homosexual indoctrination and the accompanying hostility toward religious belief. Intimidation of students and parents with traditional religious values has become an everyday occurrence there. Recently a group of CCHS teachers publicly "came out" as homosexuals and lesbians to a group of students - and encouraged the students to do the same -- in a widely celebrated after-school event. But this was possibly the most outrageous and insulting...

    Weisenthal Center demands Theodorakis be stripped of International Music Prize; composer: "US Jews behind Greek economic crisis." Mikis Theodorakis, best known for composing the musical score to the film Zorba the Greek, recently declared on Greek television that he was “anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.” “Everything that happens today in the world has to do with the Zionists,” was one such comment. Another was “American Jews are behind the world economic crisis that has hit Greece also.” Theodorakis also blasted Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou for establishing closer relations with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who was guilty, he said, of “war crimes...

    Both sides in the Egyptian “civil war” claim that their opponents are being aided by Israel and/or Jews. Egyptian State television broadcast a story Wednesday claiming that a suspicious "Israeli engineer" was caught near Suez and questioned in relation to the riots. Meanwhile a young woman was interviewed who claimed that American Jews taught her how to "bring down the government". Many people interviewed on state television have claimed that the entire uprising is being coordinated by Israel in order to "conquer all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates".

    By | Published: Jesus told his listeners, “The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof” (Matt. 21:43). For many people, this verse provides the heart of “replacement theology”—the idea that the Christian Church has replaced the old physical nation of Israel as God’s chosen people and priestly nation (1 Pet. 2:9–10, et al). Without requiring the use of the label “replacement,” this is essentially what the verse teaches. It does not mean that Jewish people can never again taste of God’s grace, it simply means that the Old Jewish...

    A growing number of hate crimes — 24 percent — included white supremacy symbols, including swastikas. Jews were targeted in about half of these crimes, followed by blacks and Latinos. “We see the same groups — African Americans, Jews, gays and lesbians, and Latinos — victimized most frequently year after year,” said Robin Toma, executive director of the Human Relations Commission. The number of crimes, which dropped from 730 in 2008 to 580 last year, reflects one murder and two attempted murders, Toma said. It is the second lowest hate crime count in the past decade. Hate crimes occurred across...

    A senior student leader in Britain faced criticism and calls to resign on Sunday after claiming that historic Jewish suffering is a modern fabrication aimed at allowing Jews to persecute Arabs. Clare Solomon, president of the University of London Student Union, who was raised Mormon, wrote on her Facebook page, “The view that Jews have been persecuted all throughout history is one that has been fabricated in the last 100 or so years to justify the persecution of the Palestinians. To paint the picture that all Jews have always had to flee persecution is just plainly inaccurate.” Her comments were...

    Most Americans are probably unaware that Jews were the victims of more than eight times as many anti-religion hate crimes last year as were Muslims. And the reason is simple: anti-Muslim crimes receive far more media attention. Case in point: the media has been all but silent on a slew of anti-Semitic acts of vandalism at Indiana University, coinciding with the beginning of the celebration of Hanukkah (h/t Stephen Richer): A series of anti-Semitic acts of vandalism aimed at various Jewish facilities on and near campus has caused Indiana University police to contact local FBI officials and members of the...
